I monitor door cameras with a third party application that gives me multiple video windows for the various video inputs in the card. I want to create an application that will overlay the video windows so that each video window becomes a button I can click on to trigger some events (lock release for example).
I've managed to get something working by using the TransparencyKey of the form set to the backcolor of my button. I though I had it done, a great transparent button in the form, and handles all my click. However, there's a little issue with portability... it won't work if I have the Windows Classic theme enabled.
One of my systems is locked down with the windows classic theme. With the Windows classic theme (whether running XP or Vista), the transparency works a little too well, the mouse clicks actually go through to the underlying window and the click event never gets triggered on my application's button.
Button1.BackColor = Color.Cyan Me.TransparencyKey = Button1.BackColor
how can I make a button invisible/transparent (and still functional) without changing FlatStyle to Flat?View 7 Replies View Related
I have a borderless form with its transparency key set to its background color. I have a richtextbox a little smaller than the form clinging to the bottom left corner of the form. At the top right corner of the RTB, I have an overlapping button control that's clinging to the top right edge of the form (it's overlapping the top right corner of the RTB.) The image I have selected for the button is a circle, so I changed the flatstyle to flat, made the border 0, made the mouseover and mousedown background colors transparent, and of course made the control's background color transparent.
Here's the problem... When I run the program, instead of seeing the top right corner of the RTB that is overlapped by the button through the button, all I see is the window that's behind my program's form (or the desktop if there is no background window.) I want to see that corner! It's supposed to look like a sheet of paper with a button overlapping the corner.[code]...

I am trying to create two semi transparent panel.When I click on panel 1, the color is semi-transparent red. Panel 2 will become semi-transparent green. When I click on panel 2, the color is semi-transparent red. Panel 1 will become semi-transparent green.
Using class below:
Public Class TransparentPanel
Private mIsActive As Boolean = False
Public WriteOnly Property IsActive() As Boolean
When I click on panel 1, it is semi-red, when I click on panel 2, panel 1 become semi-green. When I click back on panel 1, it seems to draw the semi-red on top and make it not semi-red but more red. The more click I do, the transparent is gone. Is there a way to drop the graphics and repaint it with semi-red? OR, is there a way to restore the graphics to its original state in semi-red? OR, is there a way to clear the graphics and repaint it with semi-red?

First post here, so I have no clue if this is the right place to ask this or not, but it looked like it.
Anyways, what I'm trying to do as an exercise is make a roulette game. I decided it would be best to put my buttons ON the actual table itself, so that the player can click which one he wants to bet on, and it'll bring up an Input Box asking how much he wants to bet, and yeah.
So, I tossed a button on there, set the parent to the picturebox of the roulette table, set the back color to transparent, and got rid of the text. Lo and behold, it's transparent!
I'm trying to create a simple transparent PANEL control. I want to create a custom control based on the existing Panel Control with a property added called "transparent" which can be set to true or false. If it's set to true it's transparent(not invisible). So if I place it over some controls in a form say a button or text box... they are visible but disabled.View 2 Replies View Related
I'm pretty much out of ideas here... for everything else, setting the background color to Color.Transparent or setting the TransparencyKey works fine...
I have an mp4 Video which I need to play as a "background" of my form. To do this, I'm currently using the WMP control. My problem: I can't add any controls on top of it, since they always render a background. Which looks ** on the video...
I've read many articles on how to create transparent labels but it seems to me that my particular case is not covered. Very simply I have a label placed in the upper right part of the form, which in fact is part of the menu strip. The label displays some info to the user but I wish it were transparent. I've tried various methods including
lblAct.Parent = mnuMain '(or Me)
lblAct.BackColor = Color.Transparent
But cant get it to work. How I can make that label in that position transparent?

I am trying to create a button so when a user hovers over the button it will change its image.
I used this code but it did not work.

Dim Image0 As Bitmap = My.Resources.Image2
1. Something similarly I want with another button - when I click button2, I want to remove specific object - let say panel2, not hide it.
2. The second thing is that I want to put text from my textbox into excel, but in specific row. I would like to do that with word file as well. I would like to put text form my textbox in specific table, or row, or line. I only know to put text into a file.

I am busy with a Windows Forms application.The purpose of the application is to convert Excel documents to HTML format so that they can be published to a website.I have most of the code finished and the application is looking really good.I have although encountered a problem. On the Form I have created an Export, File and Edit button.With the edit button I would like the user to be able to select whether they would like to save the 1st,2nd,3rd sheet and so forth.
I would like to create a window/Form within the edit button that would say something like "select excel sheet" along with a save button where the required sheet number could be saved or selected as a standard save procedure everytime.I know that I need to do this with the settings.settings control. I have tried numerous ideas up until now but it continues to baffle me.

I'm trying to draw a semi-transparent layer over my entire form when certain events occur, with a prompt in front of this semi-transparent layer (similar to the effect in Windows Vista/7 with UAC enabled)At first I was trying to use a custom semi-transparent panel, but this didn't seem to work at all. As such I'm now trying to use a child form within the form using the opacity property on the form. However, when this semi-transparent form is added to the controls of the main form and displayed, it loses it's transparency.I've got a hacky work around at the moment where the semi-transparent layer isn't actually a component within the main form, and the transparency works then, but obviously this isn't ideal and could potentially cause various issues further down the line.View 1 Replies View Related

I am using Visual Studio 2008 Shell and SQL Server 2008. Currently I am able to display DataGrid. But now I have a new requirement where I have to enable a text search in one of the columns. How can I implement this? I tried implementing a solution I found online, but I'm still getting errors. Please be gentle; I am a novice VB.Net programmer And since this is Shell edition and source data is on a different machine which I do not have direct access to, I am not able to debug at all.
Below is all of my code. Note that currently I cannot even view it as an ASPX page since there are still a couple of errors.

I have a Nag Screen that I am creating, and I am wanting to create a delay before the OK button is enabled allowing the user to proceed.
Is it better to use a Timer event or would a 'For I = 1 to 20000"
loop be the better option.
All this timer would do is Enable the OK button, thats all.
is it possible to have a drop down menu from a button, somewhat similar to windows right click on a file, except, click/double click a button. if you do answer, can you provide a sample code, let's say, option1 (on the drop down menu) get's text to change to bold, option 2 to italic, and so on..View 6 Replies View Related
